Business Trip for McDaniel


DeAndre McDaniel returns home to play Florida State Saturday night, but it will be all business for the Thorpe Award candidate.

After last year’s play when DeAndre knocked Christian Ponder out for the season, some may think DeAndre has been pointing to this game all year.

“Not really.  I haven’t really been thinking about this game.  I guess probably because how the season has been going.  Now it is here.  It is my last game in Tallahassee so this one is big game for me,” said McDaniel.

Don’t expect DeAndre to visit with Ponder before the game.

“Everybody is blowing that up between me and him.  I don’t look to go talk to him before the game.  Maybe we can talk after the game, but we arent’ friends until afterwards.  We can handle business then we can talk,” said McDaniel.

The senior safety looks forward to playing his final game at home.

“It is going to feel real good.  I have a lot riding on it.  It is my last time to go play there.  It is a big ACC game so we are going to go down there and handle business.  Try to end it on a good note,” said McDaniel.
